This book is about the beliefs of Ismailis. Two major sects within the Ismailis are the Agha Khanis who believe in 49 Imams and the Bohras who believe in 21 Imams. However both the Agha Khanis and the Bohras believe Ismail as an Imam, who was the son of Imam al-Sadiq (as) and they reject Musa al-Kadhim s/o Imam al-Sadiq (as). This book investigates the authenticity of the Ismaili/Fatimid Imams whether they were really divine.

Please excuse me for the deleted posts. The first post in the thread was getting extremely huge due to the sheer number of links which made it very difficult for me to edit it. So I had to split it into several posts.

If you can speak Arabic, perhaps these books of `Aqeedah might be interesting to you. Building up your Usool always leads to a strong faith, enjoy:

Salam,

I do speak Arabic, but I'm not much of a reader though. Are there  versions in English? Thank you,  I would love to build my faith.  :)

I can't say for all of them, but just eyeballing, I know al Rasa'il al-`Ashar has a translation to English, it's a decent book outlining aspects of Usul, followed by the Daleel that Shaykh al Taa'ifah رضوان الله تعالى عليه found for it. I own an old edition of it printed in the 90s, that was printed in Pakistan, so I'm not sure if it's had recent printing.
 
Though these books aren't from the site, I know that Sayyid Mujtaba Lari رضوان الله تعالى عليه had books on `Aqa'id as well, here his books "God and His Attributes" can be read. If online reading isn't your thing, his books are fairly easy to obtain, the masjid I bought my copies from said that he also gives these books for free if you contact his website. There's also the book by Yasin T. al-Jabouri entitled "Allah" which is, it includes a biography of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله, I don't know if this one can be read online though. What might be useful could be Hadeeth books on Tawheed like Tawheed al Saduq رضوان الله تعالى عليه, or parts of books of Hadeeth which deal with `Aqeedah on Tawheed, such as parts of Usul al-Kafi, or the Ahadeeth on Tawheed from `Uyun Akhbar al Ridaa عليه السلام (can be read here in English).
 
Perhaps try checking out sites like al-islam.org, they're bound to have books on theology and `Aqeedah. And sorry for the ramblings in this post.
والسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركته

Here is a site which you might not be aware of which has 1,810 titles in English. However, they are in the horrible HTML format. http://english.tebyan.net/newindex.aspx?pid=31157&Language=3 

Here is another major Iranian site, but again, the format is not PDF, but EPUB, which is better than HTML. http://islamica.ir/ 

Here are some more good resources (but again, the formats are all wrong):

May Allah bless you :)

Here's a short booklet (18 pages) on the islamic dress code by Allama Said Nursi; http://www.mediafire.com/?kksabsmb8em0enk

Happy the  husband  who  sees  the  wife’s  firm  religion  and  follows  her,  and himself becomes pious in order not to lose his companion of eternal life.
 
Happy the wife who sees her husband’s firmness in religion and becomes pious so as not to lose her eternal friend.
 
Alas for the  man who  becomes dissolute,  which will lose  him  for  ever that righteous woman.
 
Alas for the woman who does not follow her pious husband and loses her eternal blessed friend.
 
And a thousand woes on the unhappy husband and wife who imitate each other in sin and vice, helping one another to enter Hell-fire!

Salam. I think the Dropbox account above was removed or something? Thus, some of the PDF links do not work.

But, the links for http://www.ziyaraat.net/ , http://www.shiamultimedia.com & http://islamicblessings.com are pretty fine.
